Kevin Chen and Greg Nolan were presented trophies for being the 2022 Club and Reserve Champions, respectively. Congratulations to them both.
The new tournament season has begun with the March Madness Swiss. We will have 8 more tournaments until play starts to determine the 2023 champ. We'll be keeping a tally of each player's wins and draws as the year goes along to determine the the top 8 who will qualify for the Championship. Everyone else will compete in the Reserve.

Feb 18 Championship results from Ed Snyder and Jim Larsen
|Ed Snyder||Amazingly, the three players that have finished all of their games are mathematically out of the running, so these next few weeks should be exciting.
|Jim Larsen||More great games last night. Kudos to Kevin Chen, who played an outstanding game to hand me my first loss in the event.
Incredibly, there could still be a four-way tie for the top, if all of these happen: (1) Joe loses to Kevin and ends with 5; (2) Kevin beats Joe and draws Michael and ends with 5; (3) Jim beats Michael and ends with 5; (4) Michael draws Kevin, loses to Jim, and beats Aaron and ends with 5. Not likely, but still possible.
|Ed Kline||This is why I've been rooting for Mike this time. He's really not the favorite anymore the way he usually was, but it looks like he's playing well so far. I hope he wins because usually everyone is rooting against him, but lately, and especially now it's a really competitive tournament. I'm looking forward to trying to qualify for next year. Top 8 is gonna leave a lot of pretty good players out if everyone shows up regularly this year.
|Ed Synder||I totally agree, Ed. We have gained so many exceptional new players this year that there could be an unrecognizable Championship next year. And that’s a good thing.
|Keith Johnson||I can think of Michael Bury, Joe Mucerino, Greg Nolan, Kevin Chen, Jim Larsen, Nick Christofides, Ed Kline, Drew Fleming, Aaron Biscoe, Nate Bryans, Denis Markov, and myself (if I learn to start winning instead of merely playing interesting games) as twelve possible competitors, and that's if nobody else surges in the next year.
|Lance Marx||I'll be around on Thursdays now that the championship is wrapping, so maybe one more competitor! Looking forward to it!|
|Ed Synder||I think you would have an excellent chance of being in it next year, Lance.
Welcome back Lance. Darn it! Now I'm gonna have to show up for all 40 weeks just to have a reasonable chance to get in. This is gonna be tough and therefore really interesting.
Oh boy, it's gonna be hard guys.
Every game counts gentleman, don't say you weren't warned.
No disrespect to anyone not in the top 15 rated. Show up, play well, and take your shot.
|Jim Larsen||It's gonna be epic!|

Dec 30th - Championship Seed Positions, schedule , and Reserve Swiss
The 2022 WCCC Championship begins next Thursday, January 6. I thought that all active club members would be interested in following this event. I have included the schedule and Jim Larsen will update the weekly results which we will forward to you.
Keep in mind that everyone that plays on Thursday evening is eligible to get into next year's championship. It's simple. The eight players with the highest point total at the end of the year get in, depending only on ties for the last spot. The points start accumulating after the championship is completed.
Also, keep in mind that everyone not included in the championship can still come on Thursday and play rated games in the reserve section. One benefit of this is that we will not be facing those eight top players.
I wish all of you a very HAPPY NEW YEAR!!.
Here are the numbers which coincide with those on the "Grid" that I sent earlier. If you have that you can see who you will play and in what round. I will send out the schedule by date and by name, rather than number in the next day or two. GOOD LUCK TO EVERYONE.
BYW, Keith drew Denis Markov in a long battle which saw each with less than 10 seconds. Nolan lost to Joe Mucerino, so Keith is in by a point and a half. Good fight all the way. I congratulate all of you.

It seems that the consensus is that next year we assign the positions in the Championship based on their positions in which they finish the year. This system should create a desire to get more points during the year, so maybe not accepting a draw would be advantageous. For those of you that were not present tonight or have not weighed in on the email discussion, please feel free to share your thoughts. Remember, this is a club and should be exciting and fun. I believe this change adds both.

Dec 8, 2021 - Championship Standings from Ed Snyder
In an attempt to keep everyone in the running apprised of where you stand, I am updating the scores for those eligible for the Club Championship. I'll do this after each round. Keep in mind that half point byes count as zero and full point byes as a half toward the total. This is the way it has always been counted.
I am now out of the running. With 10.5 and four games remaining I cannot catch Keith.
I would like the top eight to consider whether or not they will play. If you intend to drop out please let me know. The Championship will start on January 6. I will need to have those that will be playing choose their "chips" to see where you will be placed hopefully by December 30 or before. I'll be doing that as soon as we are sure who will be in and who will not make the cutoff.
